Question

# Which of the following alkyl halides undergoes hydrolysis with aqueous $$KOH$$ at the fastest rate?

A
CH3CH2CH2Cl
B
CH3CH2Cl
C
CH3CH2CH2CH2Cl
D
CH3CH2CH(Br)CH3

Solution

## The correct option is D $$CH_3CH_2CH(Br)CH_3$$Aqueous $$KOH$$ is alkaline in nature. These hydroxide ions act as a strong nucleophile and replace the halogen atom in an alkyl halide. This results in the formation of alcohol molecules. Therefore option D is correct. Chemistry
